Can I bring my dog?
‘Fraid not. We have a no dogs policy primarily because our site is a sensitive wildlife refuge. The presence of even the best behaved dogs can scare off our otters and timid ground nesting birds.
Will my phone work?
Probably. But why not just leave it switched off and take advantage of our up to date weather reports and local knowledge for recommendations? A good chance to detox from technology and enjoy the sounds of nature instead!
Is there wi-fi?
No. The site is wi-fi free for a real back to nature experience.
Can I charge my phone?
Only if you rent our tiny home.
Can a group of us camp together?
The site is couple/family orientated so each pitch can accommodate one large tent and shelter or a couple of smaller ones. Some pitches are linked with a little path between them so that 2 families can camp next to each other. We do allow whole site bookings for several families who want exclusive use of the site but we do not allow loud music or parties so that everyone can enjoy the peace and tranquility.
What is the check-in/check-out time?
Arrivals after 12pm, leave by 11am. (for the Tiny Home arrivals after 2pm) We have to be really strict about this as we live at the end of a narrow single track lane which passes a small caravan site on the way down. To avoid meeting towing caravans and having to reverse we have an arrangement with our neighbours regarding the times people drive each way on the lane.
How far is the sea?
6 miles to the nearest beach. Over 25 beaches within easy reach (less than 20 min drive) plus the rugged coastline of Strumble Head, St Bride’s Bay, St David’s Head and Dinas Head for walks on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. In fact the whole of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail can be accessed within an hour’s drive.
Can I drive to my pitch?
No. The site is car-free to enhance the enjoyment and safety for everyone. Parking is about 20m from the entrance to the campsite and between 30 – 100m from the actual camping pitches. There are mown paths to the pitches and wheelbarrows available for ferrying gear backwards and forwards – help is available unloading if needed.
Is it suitable for youngsters?
Yes indeed! although we don’t provide specific facilities for the very young. We insist that children are supervised at all times as we have hazards including farm animals and watercourses. We have lots of self guided activities for kids such as den building, damming the stream, exploring the nature trail plus lots of games and activities in our campers’ barn. We also run activities and workshops either just for kids (young kids to be accompanied by adult or older sibling) or for the whole family.
Are there disabled facilities?
The site is not suitable for wheelchair users. The ground in places is uneven and sloping and rocky or wet and there are rustic footbridges to cross the watercourses. There are also steps up to the toilet. It depends on the type and severity of the disability whether someone could manage. Please contact us to discuss further.
Do I have to pay for showers?
No. Hot showers with soap and shampoo are free to use but we do ask that you are not wasteful with water – try our 4 minute shower challenge!
Do you hire tents?
Yes we have a 4 man Scout Patrol tent available for hire which we erect for your arrival.
Is it cold in the hut?
Quite the opposite. When the little burner is lit it heats up to T-shirt temperature in 10 minutes. With all the insulation it stays warm well after the burner goes out.
Are there lots of trains and are they noisy?
There are only a few trains a day serving Fishguard harbour. They are each only 1 or 2 carriages and are on welded rails so it just sounds like a van or lorry going past. The trains just serve as a reminder that there is a world still out there! If you are lucky you may see the Pullman doing a special journey…
